And as soon as Americans not paying attention realize this court ruling means their taxes have been raised BEFORE AN ELECTION???????? Court Ruling Lets $813 Billion in Higher Taxes Proceed - Bloomberg The LAST time a lib promised he would raise taxes it was Mondale and he lost all OF THE STATES IN THE COUNTRY EXCEPT ONE (Minnesota! Go figure!) NOW, it's not been promised, it's happened! If Republicans have a brain (and that's no certainty, look at 2006 and 2008) they will double down on this being a tax hike Obama has unleashed on the nation BEFORE AN ELECTION. So, don't be so sure libs, this is a win for you. This could be a BIG LOSS. And conservatives don't be so sure this is a loss. This could be a big win. We don't know yet. November is coming.
